FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Sitting a few feet from the people who inspired him to become one of the games best players, Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer became one of the game’s highest-paid ones as well. The 26-year-old Mauer signed an $184 million, eight-year contract extension Monday at a news conference with his parents and his two brothers looking on in a meeting room at the Lee County Sports Complex. He even used the same pen he signed his rookie contract with in 2001, when the Twins made him the No. 1 pick in the draft out of Cretin-Derham Hall High School in his native St. Paul, Minn.
